Using Machine Learning to standardize sleep scores across wearables

Sleep scores are provided by various wearable manufacturers such as Oura, Fitbit, and Whoop. They're used to signify how well you slept and usually range from 0-100. The higher the score the better you slept. We used ML to create a provider agnostic score.

We love to look at our resting HR and how it’s improving as we get fitter. However, numbers on their own don’t paint the full picture. We need to make sense of them.
